Happy Father's Day!

God our Father,
In your wisdom and love you made all things. Bless those fathers who have taken upon themselves, the responsibility of parenting. Bless those who have lost a spouse to death or divorce who are parenting their children alone. Strengthen them by your love that they may be and become the loving, caring persons they are meant to be. Grant this through Christ our Lord.

On this Father's Day, I hope my dad has a wonderful day and knows how much he is loved. My dad showed me how a woman should be treated by always treating my mom with respect, love and compassion. He has always been romantic and sentimental. He never fails to share his love. I have never doubted his love for me, and that's an amazing gift, I think. This picture was taken in April when I was home for my brother's wedding - it's me, him and my sister J.

Ahhh, and then there's my husband, B. He never hid the fact that he desired children, and although he thought he only wanted one child when we met -- he is thrilled to have 2 and would love for our family to grow even larger. He didn't have many good male role models growing up, but that didn't stop him from becoming an amazing husband and an outstanding father. There is nothing more important to this man than moments shared with his sons. It melts my heart to see him on the floor playing with our boys, sitting in their darkened room with his arms outstretched so he can hold each of their hands while they're falling asleep, listening to him recite the rosary with our sons, snuggling them whenever given the chance. Everything he does he does to provide for his family and make things easier for me. I am extremely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. I love him.
